SOWELA Oakdale

SOWELA – Oakdale cordially invites you to be a “Flying Tiger for a Day” on Thursday, March 28, 2019!  The purpose of this event is to allow participants, typically juniors and seniors, to tour our campus and learn about the great educational opportunities we offer right here in Oakdale.  Each high school may request a tour time that accommodates your schedule.  We ask that students be bused in and dropped off at the main entrance.  An overview of the College will be provided then students are welcome to visit the programs of interest for more information.  The length of the tour will be approximately 30 - 45 minutes.  Students will then depart through the back entrance for transport back to their respective high schools.
